Perkins® Diesel Engine Oil, Replacement Engines and Platinum Protection now available in North America

At ConExpo 2017 Perkins is showing a new range of service and support solutions specifically designed to support Perkins engines operating across North America.

To address our customer’s needs in the USA, Canada and Mexico, we’ve launched Perkins® Diesel Engine Oil (DEO), the only oil formulated specifically for the long operating life and performance of Perkins engines.

This unique engine oil, recommended for use in Perkins U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and below engines, is comprised of a mix of additives, designed specifically to prevent the build-up of conditions which can impair the oil performance, reduce operating life and potentially damage engine components.

We’ve developed Perkins Engine Oil to provide end users with unbeatable protection for their engine. Our oil is compatible with Tier 4 Final and below engines, and has been proven to deliver unrivalled engine performance. The oil comes in 20 and 208 litre quantities and is being made available through the Perkins network of distributors.

Remanufactured and replacement engines

As the cost of new machines continues to rise, more people are looking at major overhauls as an alternative to buying new. Perkins provides the industry’s most complete range of remanufactured and replacement engines that are now more cost-effective and more readily available than ever before.

Perkins now offers a full range replacement engine programme, helping end users minimise downtime in the event of in-field failures with more flexible overhaul options and shorter lead times.

Michael said: “We now offer better availability than ever before, including support for previous engine generations and even competitor brands. With as-new engine performance, genuine Perkins parts and factory-standard warranties, we can help customers extend the residual worth of their machine when they decide it’s time to sell.”

Perkins offers off-the-shelf, new complete replacement engines on select models which meet emissions standards and are a drop-in aftermarket overhaul solution as well as offering:

  • New Long Engines and Reman Long Engines: Our long engines are built to a design specification that provides flexibility and value for customers requiring a re-power.
  • New Short Engines and Reman Short Engines: Our short engines are an economical repair option with minimal downtime, delivering a dependable solution for major engine seizures.
  • New Complete Head: If your cylinder head is damaged but the rest of the engine is in good condition, our complete heads are a quick and cost-effective solution.
